The Vineyeard

These grapes are grown from calcareous soil with high clay content of the Côte Chalonnaise. The slopes are gentle and face towards the East and Southeast.

The Château du Cray is a vineyard of 17 hectares of which 7 hectares are cultivated with the red Burgundy of the Cote Chalonnaise. It is located north of the commune of Buxy. The grapevines are around the château, on the middle of the hillside and benefit from an excellent exposure to the east and southeast.

This wine is made exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape.
